Evangeline Lilly's partner, Norman Kali, worked in the entertainment industry before becoming a stay-at-home dad. He has been with the actress for several years but does not plan to tie the knot soon.


Evangeline Lilly and Norman Kali are not married, but there's no denying that they have a strong relationship that has lasted many years.

Lilly and Kali are very private and rarely talk about their relationship. However, she sometimes posts about him on social media.


Earlier this year, Lilly paid tribute to her partner on Instagram, writing a lengthy post about growing in love with Kali. She said:

"It took spending a lot of time with a man who loved me well and who was deeply aligned with my values for me to realize that a life partner isn't determined by whom I love."

Norman Has Acting Experience, Just like His Famous Girlfriend

Evangeline Lilly's partner is also an actor known for his appearance in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." He also worked behind the scenes as a crew member in "50 First Dates" and "Tears of the Sun." In 2008, he joined the special effects team of "Tropic Thunder."

Nowadays, Kali spends his time in their residence as a stay-at-home father. Lilly also had her time off the grid after she moved to Hawaii with Kali for two years. She returned to Hollywood when Peter Jackson offered her a role in "The Hobbit" franchise.


She also left her peaceful island life to star in "Ant-Man," where she plays the leading lady of the titular character alongside Paul Rudd. At that time, Kali's partner said she had to "make peace" with her Hollywood career and "embrace all the things that made [her] uncomfortable."

Norman Kali Has Been in a Low-Key Relationship for Years

The actress finds comfort in the arms of her family. Evangeline Lilly's boyfriend has been with her for a long time, after meeting on the ABC show "Lost." Lilly starred as Kate Austen, one of the group heads, while Kali worked behind the scenes.

The series was shot in Hawaii, a location they both fell in love with. This is why the couple relocated to the island with their kids when the show ended.


Although they have been together for many years and already have children, wedding bells are yet to ring. The couple is in no rush to become husband and wife as they are confident in their love for each other. Lilly said:

"[...] emotionally neither of us really feels the need for it. We love each other today, and we hope we'll love each other tomorrow. In my world, I don't believe in forever promises. I don't think it's realistic."

Despite remaining girlfriend and boyfriend, Lilly is not shy about professing her love to Kali and does so on Instagram.

In 2020, Lilly shared a sweet photo of her kissing her partner. She expressed her gratitude in the caption, noting that she is lucky to have found someone with whom she can nurture her relationship.


Norman Kali Is a Father of Two

Kali shares two children with his girlfriend. The couple's firstborn, Kahekili Kali, was born in 2011 amidst a storm and power outage. Lilly opted for a home birth and endured 30 hours of labor and eight hours of straight pushing before her son came.

Shortly after his birth, Kahekili was spotted with his parents in a local supermarket in Hawaii. The parents looked happy as the new mom tightly held her newborn in her arms.

In 2015, Lilly and Kali welcomed their second child. However, they did not share many details about their baby's birth.
